A friend of mine who used to work at museums wanted to see the Walters Museum, so I visited it with her. Both of us were pleased with the amount of art to see. General admission was free (special exhibitions would cost some). Surprisingly, the museum was kid-friendly with its providing of coloring kits. Most of the artwork itself was not kid-friendly, although my friend's two year-old did enjoy the butterfly models. The museum was not very crowded for a Saturday late morning and afternoon. There is a cafe in a cool-looking Medieval-themed room, but the food selection was small and did not easily show prices, so we ended up eating at a restaurant in the neighborhood. Overall opinion: lots of neat stuff to see, and for free you can't go wrong.

Admission to the Walters is free, which is appropriate, because the stimulation this museum provides cannot be quantified. The collection is larger than you can experience in a few visits, and the museum brings in very good travelling exhibitions. The Walters is particularly strong in antique, medieval and early modern art. (The BMA is the place to go for modern and contemporary art.) There's a tour and a free concert in the auditorium most Friday evenings, and the museum plays host to plenty of other interesting events. Check out the website -- it's worth a visit.

One of the best small art museums in the country. Underappreciated, but a most lovely treasure. Artworks are lushly displayed (no chrome-on-a-white-wall minimalism here). My favorite sections are ancient Greek and Roman, and, the best, the medieval. Such beauty is balm for the soul. Please go and sing its praises! With the upcoming (starting October, 2006) free admission, there's no excuse not to!

A big fan of this museum. I don't like art that much, but even I can appreciate this place. Very unique and worth taking the time to stop in and look around.

I've been to many museums around the world, and there is no finer display than the Walters. The special exhibits are always supurb.....the time and effort which goes into every showing is obvious.

With the Walters in town, Baltimore does not take a back seat to any other metropolitan area when it comes to wonderful art of various media.

Dr. Vikan has done a marvelous job of developing a world class museum.

Pros: Wonderful remodeling, great value

Cons: Need more parking

What a delightful setting for the art - especially the Asian collection! The history of the family who gathered the original collections is a wonderul story entwined with the history of Baltimore.
